VMware's technology partners have access to VMware engineering resources and product source code to support deeply integrated VMware vSphere extensions.
VMware’s APIs and SDKs expose every control, performance, and monitoring feature offered by VMware vCenter Server so third parties can build in support for every aspect of VMware vSphere, including vMotion, DRS, and HA.
